Toronto, Canada
4.5 / 122
A museum designed to demonstrate and popularize the scientific achievements of mankind. It was founded in 1969. On the territory of the museum you can see with your own eyes the latest developments in the fields of physics, astronomy, medicine, biology and other industries. An impressive part of the exposition is devoted to space exploration and related tasks. The museum is aimed at the general public from the smallest to adult visitors.



Since my family and I have a membership, we decided to come and visit the museum today. The bus ride was about 20 minutes. We walked instead of taking the shuttle bus because the line was too long. Previously, we have had experiences of food poisonin.. Read more »
Was very excited to come here, we arrived later in the day due to other plans having been priority. The main entrance- we realized we needed to take a shuttle to the exhibits as the bridge is closed? We didn’t have to wait long for a ride thank.. Read more »
Loved my first visit to the science centre! We could not even complete the ground floor in three hours and aim to go again! Highly interactive with the kids experiencing sound by playing on drums or just going into a silent zone! Excellent exhibition.. Read more »
So many cool displays and experiences... but it's also looking a bit run down. There didn't seem to be as many displays .. especially interactive ones .. than I remember. Also the tunnel is closed so you have to take shuttle busses. So stra.. Read more »

We came here as a year end event with the kids and kinda disappointed to see that a lot of things has been taken out. Especially the space area so little to see now. The gift shop is also gone just a small little both in the way out. They have 2 din.. Read more »
Absolutely great place. We loved the space section, a lot to learn in a fun and an intuitive way. Kids had a lot of fun learning. It would take half a day if you intend to take your time to see, learn and interact. There is easy access via transit, e.. Read more »

I've been going since I was a kid. Now I bring my kiddos. The thing I appreciate the most about the Ontario Science Center is that almost all of it has a hands-on element. Exploring and learning about science is so much fun when we get to exper.. Read more »
First time coming to the Ontario Science Centre. It was a good and positive experience for our kids. There were multiple floors for them to enjoy learning about things and getting to build/play/experiment with what they are learning. A little bit of .. Read more »
A good place for Science lover and curious. So much to explore in a day, I'll say you'll need minimum 3 days to explore this place and appreciate everything. I took the annual pass to make sure I'll get to enjoy the place. With the pa.. Read more »
Amazing Day Spent With Kids! Wasn’t as crowded as expected but was busy enough. Plenty of hands on, interactive displays for kids and adults. Tons of spots to eat if you planned ahead and packed a lunch. Greeters outside were very kind and .. Read more »
Perfect for kids... Surley a day they would remember in their lives..They have made it as interactive as possible so that the kids could soak in all the information while having fun. Not a lot for the adults to marvel at from a 'science center&#.. Read more »
Science experiments on the go .. beautifully presented concepts and so so many things to explore . The ground floor had many sections where there are properties of magnets , fulcrum, pulley and so so much of physics with reasoning. The biology sectio.. Read more »
It was bigger than I expected, got there just before 1 and left around 5. It was summer time so many kids and families r there but it was a wholesome environment. The staffs were super friendly and quick to inform, we felt welcomed right away. The o.. Read more »
We are visitors from BC so we were hoping the Ontario Science Centre would be like our own Science World in Vancouver, but bigger. Boy were we wrong; it's bigger, but not on par in quality or educational value in any way. We went on a Friday. Th.. Read more »
Went to the science centre with the kids and they loved it. All the displays are engaging for different age groups so there's always something for everyone. My kids especially love the kids play area. I signed up for their summer camp for one w.. Read more »
The bridge is under repairs... They're shuttling folks from the front to the back. Super efficient. Nice facilities! Lots of great interactive sites. Highly recommend! The kids were super tired from the entire day.
A great place for children and teens. Some of the exhibits are older, but they always add new things. The entire facility is in multiple levels, but elevators make it accessible to wheelchairs or strollers. They have a dedicated area to children unde.. Read more »
I haven't been to the Science in years, but our Godson just turned 5 and they have never been before. It really hasn't changed as in hands on and exhibits to see. Some of the new exhibits were really good. He loves space, so level 4 was vis.. Read more »
We weren't sure what to do over the long weekend so we tried the OSC. We have a boy just under two and he had a blast. So many exhibits to see and creative spaces to explore. He was over the moon with excitement every time we entered a new secti.. Read more »
Exhibits are in need updating to be more interactive and suit a wider range of ages. Most are not well designed for children under 10 and the kids zone age range should be capped at 5 to ensure a safer experience for toddlers and younger children. .. Read more »
Nice and well organized science center. The staff is always helpful and friendly. I became a member during winter so I could bring my daughter to enjoy the centre when the weather was not the greatest. I have been there with her many times since Dec.. Read more »

This is the most recommended place for kids. Visited the science centre with my 4 Years old. They had lots of fun and learning experience. There are 5 levels - we could visit only Bugs hall and Space one. Kidzone is super fun. Experience and recomm.. Read more »
2021 December 4.5★ Despite it's name, Ontario Science Centre, this science center is more like Toronto's science center. Why? There are other science centers in Ontario... Though this might be the largest. Another good comparable is Science.. Read more »
Excellent place for kids to have fun and learn. I used to go there when I was young, it was exciting. Over the years I have been there few times but the place got boring and nothing new. But I went there after 3 years and it looks so different. They.. Read more »
This is a great place for students, especially high school. It has education with regard to geography and history, which is a must go place. In addition, the 3D theatre inside, which plays a show based on real nature is so cool. I would highly recomm.. Read more »
Fun place. Not all the activities are great but kids can enjoy and run around. Gives lot of chances for parents to engage kids in learning. Planetary membership good for 2 adults and kids. Gives 2 parking passes as well. Nice deal. Probably wil.. Read more »
Our kids loved Science World - lots of great exhibits and fun for the whole family. We really enjoyed it! The staff were also very friendly and helpful. Budget about 2hrs there and bring your own snacks as there aren't that much food options. If.. Read more »
Great fun for anyone! Families with children, couples, adults, just anyone curious about science and wanting an interactive experience. It's a popular spot to visit among families with children. Children love that they can interact and play wit.. Read more »
Currently updating their exhibits..totally worth the hype. Great range of topics covered by the exhibits split across 5 levels. Kids activity section on level 3(?, maybe Level 4) great for toddlers and under 12s!
Always a pleasure visiting the science center. Certain things still aren't open but it was a good time regardless. Good thing to do indoors when the weather isn't so good. But also a great place for adults with some pretty interesting ex.. Read more »

It's a fantastic place to take the kids. All of the interactive learning exercises were a hit with them. There's a lot to see and do, and the exhibits are rather engaging. There were no issues with us bringing in our own snacks and other it.. Read more »
The place is built on a hill and is very large, too large as exhibits are scattered all over the place on many levels. The exhibits are good but be prepared for long walks and lots of escalator rides to get anywhere. If your looking for space scienc.. Read more »
An excellent place to come bring your family. They have several floors of fun and educational displays. It does seem that most of the displays are for younger kids. The cost of admissions is fair and they have some cool stuff in the gift shop. Facili.. Read more »
Very interesting and fun place (esp. if you have kids). We made friends with A. Wong (he has been working there for 20+ years) and he was very nice, friendly, knowledgable and attentive! Did not expect we would like it this much, only went because t.. Read more »
The Omnivax experience is certainly unique. The expositions are okay but not mind blowing and worthy of a return trip. Considering that the science center is in Canada's most important city, one would think that the center would have a more robu.. Read more »
Such a remarkable place. I grew up going here, and now bring my small kids. Lots to.learn, see, touch and do, and all very well organized esp. in coronavirus times. 100% worth a visit!
great fun for kids and adults alike , you can't leave without having learned something and the curiosity of the unknown helps with family connections by learning together and even outside offers serine trails for biking or walks and park for pic.. Read more »
The Ontario Science Center consists of 6 floors and all of them are great! They are all so unique for any age and all the staff are polite. I get a lot of nostalgia every time I go here! There is a planeterium, an outdoor valley and so much more to d.. Read more »
It is great that these days our kids are being offered something beyond staring at all kinds of screens all days long! Ontario Science Centre is a rare example of something done right. A great way to spend a day with your family. The place is very mu.. Read more »

I loved the Ontario Science Centre when it was new (opened in 1969). School trips were a real treat at one time, but now, the place is in decay with non-functioning older exhibits (some still there from when I was a kid), lack of innovation, nothing .. Read more »
Very popular place for both kids and adults. Many fun hands-on activities and also educational. One of the best places to visit in Toronto.
Not a great place for actually learning. Cool experience to see the amphibians in the plant section but it doesn't really teach you anything. the lectures actually teach you stuff. It also isn't that fun. The first time was cool but the sec.. Read more »
Huge space and the exhibits are quite interactive for both children and adults. Their IMAX theatre is pretty good as well. Some parts are a bit outdated, however it is a big space and you can easily spend at least a couple of hours in here
The kids enjoyed all aspects of this.
Took my two nephews here before covid hit :(. Many many things to do. Perfect place for any kids who have keen interest in science.
we went there last time. This place was amazing. We throughoutly enjoyed the tour as they give typical insights into showcased items. Great fun for kids and adults alike.
Such a great place , never ever miss your chance to take kids. You are going to love ❤️ it. Full of knowledge and highly educated staff. Thank you. Thank goodness it’s in my city . Love you ?. Thank you.
The science centre never disappoints but it was better before they had the renovations. The interactive exhibits are a bit chaotic, and a lot of the interactive activities do not work. The airplane station where you make your own paper airplane seems.. Read more »
Spent the day here with my four year old and we had a great time. Lots of parking and plenty to see inside. If you have time, see a show in the IMAX theater - so cool! You will also find the perfect cup of java at The Maker Bean Cafe on Level 2 so do.. Read more »
